Teacher disciplined for obsolete grammar in comment on student’s homework assignment

A local high school teacher was disciplined for using obsolete sentence structure when attempting to provide constructive criticism on a student’s homework assignment.

“Due to the outdated words and grammar from before 2016, neither the student nor her mother knew what the teacher meant,” noted school principal Kirous Sisalik, who also noted that he “acted quickly to prevent this from ever happening again.”

“Once we were notified, I notified HR who notified district officials who who notified parents instructing them to notify the the school board on social media,” Sisalik said.

“We’re all caring, loving educators, and we’re also humans who make mistakes,” Sisalik continued. “We held our colleague to high professional standards and we believe she has appropriately fled the country.”

The Sacramento Brie showed the homework assignment to a local kindergarten teacher.

“All she needed to say was ‘WTF is this?’ and everyone would have understood exactly what she meant,” said Ms. Bijeli. “Even my kindergarten students get that.”
